It should come as no surprise that a retailer’s job is to make money. According to Retail Economics, the total value of UK retail sales in 2018 was £381 billion. However, with the busiest shopping period of the year getting closer, people are now looking at alternative ways to save money on much needed purchases. From bargain shops to price drop alert tools, there are plenty of ways to save money as we head into Christmas and the new year.

As low-price shopping experts, PIWoP’s want to keep your money in your pockets and help you save money. That’s why we have created this list of four shopping secrets that you need to know.

Abandoned Baskets Get Discount Codes

We have all been there. You add item after item into your basket until you notice the huge price tag and quickly abandoned it. But did you know failing to finish your order can lead companies to send you codes to tempt you back? From ASOS to Victoria Secret, many people have been emailed up to 20% off their next order, simply because they didn’t finish their online shopping.

Prices Ending in 7, 8 or 1 Are Clearance

If you’re looking for the best deals on electronics, it’s worth knowing that prices ending in 7, 8 or 1 are usually clearance items. If you suspect a product is clearance stock, it can be a perfect haggling opportunity to get it for a lower price.

You Can Haggle Online

While it’s often frowned upon, haggling is a great way to save you money. But did you know you can also haggle online? By talking with someone through the online chat, you can access hidden deals. One person even saved £300 off a £1,200 Dell laptop via the online chat!

Price Tracking Tools Save You Money

There’s always that one item we want to purchase, but don’t want to pay full price for it. That’s where a price tracking tool can come in handy. Price tracker apps like PIWoP track the price of the item you want across well-known retailers like Amazon, Debenhams and more. Once the product has reached a price you want to pay, you will receive a notification.

At PIWoP, our price drop alert service ensures you always get the products you want at a price you want to pay. If you would like more information about our service, visit our How It Work’s page or get in touch with our team today.
